Driving Difficult Conversations

Presenter:  Libby Roberts,  ATW Training Solutions

When people problems arise at work, we have choices. We can manage troublesome situations the way many people do, ignore them. Or we can make a conscious choice to effectively confront issues—even when the issues are complicated, difficult, and lead us out of our comfort zone. 

In this course, we will show you how to conduct a difficult conversation that leads to improved relationships and increased productivity. You will leave the session with a better understanding of yourself and others and increased confidence when holding a difficult conversation. 

After this session, participants will: 

  • Identify common “difficult conversations” 
  • Use emotional intelligence to respond during difficult conversations 
  • Prepare to have a difficult conversation 
  • Use a three-step model to conduct an effective difficult conversation 
  • Recognize and address potential obstacles that may occur when having a difficult conversation 


Please note that ATDU sessions are only available to employees of Central Iowa non-profit organizations.

Space is limited.
If you are unable to attend the class, please cancel your registration as soon as possible so people on the waiting list can attend.
